Coolest most affordable place in downtown Chicago
The kitchen in my suite had no utensils, but I wasn't looking for them anyway. The kids' floor had a fully stocked kitchen with a system for labeling food as personal or to give away. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Laundry, computer and printer, drinks and snacks were all available at a reasonable charge. Hi Chicago is even composting paper towels from the restrooms. This is just a really cool place.

Central location, inexpensive, great for solo trip
It's a hostel, not a hotel, and as long as you know what a hostel is and how they work (and are looking for that), you should be very happy. Sleeping spaces are bunk beds in shared rooms, so you will have roommates, very likely from other parts of the world. The communal spaces are large and well laid-out. The price and location can't be beat.

Excellent4.0 / 5
HI Chicago provided a great value and convenient location for us during the Chicago Marathon. The free breakfast was awesome, but get there early! It is a hostel, but a very clean and modern one. The two caveats are that the room was very warm and didn't have much cross-ventilation. There was also some noise from the train, but it wasn't bad (we were on the 6th floor). Lastly, the only flat surface in our room was a small nightstand--it would have been great to have a shelf so that we weren't keeping our things on the floor. Overall, very convenient for what we needed.
